Ming Tung v. China Buddhist Association (2016)

The Freedom from Religion Foundation filed this brief with the Supreme Court on November 4th, 2016 in support of the petitioners. This case revolved around a property dispute between the China Buddhist Association and the sole surviving member of the original Board of Trustees.

FFRF argued that church property issues should be handled with ordinary secular law and that no special attention should be given to the fact that the properties were religious in nature. It further explained that as more people begin to identify as non-religious and churches begin selling off their property this issue will become more common, thus, a consistent and neutral application of law is important to establish.
